    How do you speak American?

    Take the test:

    http://www.blogthings.com/amenglishdialecttest

    Me:
    65% General American English
    20% Dixie
    5% Yankee
    5% Midwestern
    5% Upper Midwestern


    Surprisingly, I only came out 20% Dixie.

    (But then Texas ain't Dixie! http://www.northernsounds.com/forum/...es/biggrin.gif )

    It's that 5% Yankee that has me worried.

    Apparently, I'm Japanese...

    Naw. This is my profile:
    85% General American English
    10% Yankee
    5% Upper Midwestern
    0% Dixie
    0% Midwestern

    I'm a life-long Pacific Coaster. I've got relatives in Minnesota. (Hi Ern!) Apparently, we Lefterners don't get our own accent.

    Buenos tardes, amigos!
